Louis Jadot Clos des Ursules Domaine des Héritiers 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
One of the flagship wines of the Beaune, this Pinot Noir sourced from a walled monopole vineyard offers up bright, sun-kissed red-cherry and wild-strawberry flavors accented by hints of fur and earth. It's ripe and robust in body but freshly balanced by a spirited edge of acidity and very fine, persistent tannins. At peak from 2023 through 2032, it's likely to hold further.
Always one of the high points of the portfolio, the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) offers up aromas of berries and plums with hints of warm spices and orange rind, framed by a deft touch of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, round and fleshy, with elegantly muscular structuring tannins and lively acids, this will age with grace.
The 2019 Beaune Clos des Ursules 1er Cru has a fragrant bouquet featuring a mélange of red and black fruit intermingled with orange blossom and iodine aromas. Good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a stocky opening, fine structure and symmetry and a fine bead of acidity. There's a dark fruit flourish toward the finish, which leaves behind a subtle marine-themed aftertaste. Excellent.
